Minimum Standards for Undergraduate Students

Trevecca’s institutional requirements for minimum SAP for undergraduate financial aid recipients are defined as follows:

  1. Minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA):

    The student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA:

  2. Hours

    GPA Required

    0-29

    1.6

    30-59

    2.0

    60-89

    2.0

    90-completion

    2.0

  3. Minimum completion rate:

    The student must maintain a minimum cumulative completion rate of two-thirds of credits attempted (67 percent).

  4. Maximum time frame to complete the program/degree:

    The student must complete his or her educational program within a time frame no longer than 150 percent of published length of the educational program, as measured by credits attempted and including transfer credits. (For example, the student must complete his or her program after attempting a maximum of 180 credits for a 120-credit program.)

A student may take coursework in the summer term to meet the SAP criteria and have their financial aid reinstated. The student will be responsible for notifying the Financial Aid Office. 

Students who graduate from one program at Trevecca and then enroll in a second eligible program should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine their SAP status under their new program of study.

Federal regulations require that TNU track the academic progress of financial aid recipients from the first date of enrollment at TNU, whether or not financial aid was received.

Academic work done at other institutions (if accepted by TNU toward a degree) will count for the progress standard. Summer work counts towards the cumulative requirements. Remedial work will be considered as part of the satisfactory progress. Federal funds can be used to pay for one repeated course.
